Residents of Graham know how to have fun as a community. The First Friday Concert series runs from May through September, with local talent performing everything from symphonies to rock music. Four times a year, the city hosts a Community Campfire. Locals gather around to make s’mores, drink hot chocolate, and share their lives with each other beside a cozy outdoor fire. During summer months, residents bring blankets and chairs to one of the local parks for Movies in the Park. Sit back and share some laughs while you munch popcorn and watch a family-friendly movie.
Southern food means homestyle cooking at its best. There is few better ways to start your morning than with a fresh glazed doughnut from Tasty Bakery. If you stop by after work, try some of their out-of-this-world chocolate chess pie. The Carolinas are famous for amazing barbecue, and Hursey’s Bar-B-Q lives up to that reputation. Get a glass of sweet tea to go along with pulled pork, hushpuppies, and some of the tangiest coleslaw you will ever try. If only pizza will do, Naples Pizzeria is where locals know to go for the tastiest slices. The pizzas are gigantic and always crisp and cheesy.
Museums for Everyone
Once the government center back when Graham was just a town, the Graham Historical Museum is now open to the public as a museum and meeting hall.

Dedicated to helping children explore creativity and encourage learning, there are many themed areas for kids to enjoy and discover.
